I began my scientific life as a cellular immunologist, but I then slowly switched to cell biology and developmental neurobiology, mainly focusing on the intrinsic and extrinsic molecular mechanisms that control the development and behaviour of myelinating glial cells and retinal cells. I retired from active science in 2002 and now spend much of my time on scientific advisory boards and thinking about autism.
